Hi Brandy,
Yes, the Fishing Spiders can be startlingly large. All spiders have venom, but few pose a danger to humans. Your Brownish-Gray Fishing Spider, Dolomedes tenebrosus, which is also known as the Dark Dolomedes, is harmless. They are amazing spiders, and are usually found near water. They can dive below the surface and remain there motionless for thirty minutes. They also catch small fish. They breath air that is trapped by hairs on their bodies. It ranges throughout New England, into Canada and other areas of the Eastern seaboard.
